Vicky Cornell Thanks Pearl Jam For ‘Remembering And Honoring’ Husband Chris In Amsterdam Show



Vicky Cornell feels the love and support after Pearl Jam's emotional tribute to late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell in Amsterdam.

In a tweet, the widower and mother reached out to the alternative rock band and expressed her gratitude for the thoughtful and heartfelt homage a year after the beloved singer-songwriter passed away.

Vicky Cornell Thanks Pearl Jam For Chris Cornell Tribute

"Thank you Pearl Jam for remembering and honoring Chris Cornell," she wrote on Twitter. She also added the hashtags #familymatters and #loudlove.

The tweet was a response to the news that Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, and Matt Cameron wore Soundgarden and Chris shirts onstage at their concert at the Ziggo Dome.

Photos and videos from the event showed Cameron, the band's drummer, wearing a t-shirt featuring the late rock icon's face in a template similar to the logo of Starbucks. Meanwhile, frontman and lyricist Vedder had on a "Nude Dragons" shirt, the alias used by Soundgarden in 2010 for a surprise comeback show. McCready, their guitarist, was wearing a shirt that said Ultramega Ok, the title of Soundgarden's 1988 critically-acclaimed debut studio album, reported NME.

The tribute comes a few weeks after Vicky, Chris's family and friends, and hundreds of fans remembered the first anniversary of the well-loved rockstar who died by suicide last year through a public vigil held at his tomb in Los Angeles on May 18.

Next month, the world will be celebrating what would have been his 54th birthday.

Pearl Jam also remembered Chris by dedicating their rendition of "Come Back," a track from their 2006 self-titled album, to the late singer.


Pearl Jam Tribute To Parkland Shooting Victims, Slams Donald Trump

In March, Pearl Jam also debuted a new song titled "Can't Deny Me" at the Lollapalooza 2018 music festival in Chile. Vedder dedicated the performance to the heroic survivors of the February Parkland shooting in Florida who continue to fight for gun reform in the United States.

"[T]his is dedicated to the incredible students in Florida and the United States who survived a terrible tragedy," the 53-year-old singer-songwriter said in Spanish.

During the band's concert in London last week, Vedder also called out U.S. President Donald Trump for his controversial border policy that separates children from their parents. Vedder dedicated the song "Love Boat Captain" to the Republican leader during the performance.

"I would like him to hear it but he doesn't listen to music or read books. Could someone tweet this to him or something?" He said. "For moms and dads and children being separated at the border. That isn't the country I remember."
